'Sugar Babies' attract 'Daddies' at UGA

January 15, 2013

Hundreds of college students are taking advantage of an online dating service that sets them up with wealthy men in exchange for help covering tuition.

According to Maureen Downey at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, SeekingArrangement.com users are referred to as "Sugar Babies" or "Sugar Daddies." The company says the average amount received from a Sugar Daddy is around $3,000 dollars a month. 

 

What's even more appalling is the list of the Top 20 Fastest Growing Sugar Baby Schools, which shows Georgia State University leading with 292 new sign ups in 2012 and the University of Georgia at number 8 with 148 sign ups.   

In fact, many of the top growing schools are based in the south, including the University of Central Florida, Florida State University and the University of Alabama. 

 

Is there a difference between what SeekingArrangements.com offers and prostitution?

Why does the south have so many college students participating?

Are higher tuition prices and cuts in HOPE Scholarship to blame?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
